The new Photos app for OS X will replace both Aperture and iPhoto

At WWDC, Apple announced a new app for the Mac called Photos, which will be┬ápart of OS X Yosemite. Many wondered what the announcement┬ámeant for Apple’s current photo library┬áprograms on Mac, which included the consumer-oriented iPhoto and the pro-oriented Aperture. According to a statement from Apple provided to Gigaom, there will be no new development of Aperture when Photos for OS X becomes available early next year. It also appears that the new Photos app, with a heavy emphasis on iCloud Photo Library integration, will replace iPhoto. This leaves Adobe’s Lightroom as the logical choice for professional photographers using a Mac.
